Abstract

Nowadays, coastal erosion along the Malaysia shorelines had become a major issue. Global warming problem had increase the sea level due to the rapid melting of glaciers also become one of the leading factor to the erosion problem along the coastline. Instead, there are others reason such as natural weathering, reduced sediment discharge from rivers into coastal areas and human impacts. In order to solve this problem, the Government had set up the Coastal Engineering Centre in the Department of Irrigation andDrainage (DID) in 1987 to implement coastal erosion control program throughout the country. Although the action was taken, there were some deficiencies on it which is the data gathering of the coastal protection structures which had been implemented were not provided properly. To improve the systems, the author is taking initiative to create a database scheme of coastal protection along the Peninsular Malaysia coastline. The gathering of this database is hoped to develop better understanding on design criteria about coastal protection scheme along Peninsular Malaysia coastlines performances and failure mode of structure. In presenting the database of coastal protection scheme along Peninsular Malaysia's shoreline, software called GIS (Maplnfo Professional 7.0®} is used. Easy access to acquiring information from this database would produce a general framework in helping designing the coastal protection structures andgives benefit to contractors owners anddevelopers in Malaysia for future development
